Question Proxy- and socksserver


Hi all!

Recently i've got Squid running, it works perfectly! But I also want my clients use POP3,SMTP and NEWS throught my proxy. I know Squid is only for HTTP but is there an add-on to use socks? Or maybe an alternative?

Thanxx

You don't want to use SMTP through squid - it is not secure. It could allow anyone to relay mail through your proxy. Plus there is not a sinlge reason to cache or filter SMTP traffic anyways. For SMTP go through your regular gateway/firewall instead.

But the only way to connect to the internet is through my Debian server. So I have to do something to forward those ports. I don't want clients connect directly to the internet. I'm just asking for a solution to give clients access to POP3, SMTP, NEWS etc. throught my Debian server.

Easy solution, you need to make your Debian the mail server of your local network; open SMTP only for this server and enable all other hosts to relay only through this server.

That's an idea, but what about pop3 and nntp. Is there also a solution for that?

Yes, there's about two dozen different solutions you can use for POP3. The easiest to setup and most popular one now is dovecot. It's also very fast. For nntpd you can use the cyrus version.
